Please note also that using our e-mail "unsubscribe" feature will only affect your future e-mail communications from the Company alone. Accordingly, if in connection with a previous Company e-mail to you, you have authorized us to share any of your information with a third party or have directly provided your information to a third party, then that third party may continue to contact you. The Company will have no liability to you in connection with those third party contacts.
